Sukhothai Café

Treat yourself to good food and drink at Sukhothai Café in Kapaa. Some may say it’s rare to see healthy, gluten-free menu options, but Sukhothai Café says it’s a necessity. Our specialty, of course, is truly authentic Thai food. But we also offer fantastically delicious Chinese and Vietnamese delights. Chef Jintana from Bangkok Thailand prepares daily mouthwatering appetizers, fresh papaya salads, sumptuous soups and curries. We have a large vegetarian menu. Enjoy a refreshing fresh fruit smoothie, Thai iced tea, Thai Coffee, or an exotic hand cut coconut. Sukhothai Café is not just recommended for its great food but also for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Located at 4-1330 Kuhio Hwy. in Kapaa, look for the large exotic fresh fruit stand on the sidewalk just in front of our restaurant. We feature to go orders at 821-1224.

Finest Ingredients

Sukhothai Café – Our Name Says It All! In Hawaii they call it the aloha spirit … in Thailand they call it the land of smiles. Every morning we’re off bright and early down to the local sunshine growers market to make sure we get the freshest ingredients. Then it’s off to start preparing all of our varied specialty sauces. Yes … that equates to long hours, but it’s all worth it at the end of the day when we look back and think about how many smiles we put on everyone’s face! How many times do people get to come to Hawaii? If you’re like most it’s probably once. And if there’s something we can do to make that one time even more memorable, then we have accomplished our goal.

Guest Reviews

Driving through Kapaa not knowing exactly where we were going we were hoping to find someplace that offered truly authentic Thai and Chinese food. JACKPOT … we pulled up to the Sukhothai Café located in the heart of Old Kapaa Town and they had it all; our dream had come true … crispy spring rolls, papaya salad, fresh lemon grass soup, pad Thai, and lots of delicious specialties that came with your choice of chicken … pork … beef … shrimp or fish. Best of all everything was reasonably priced so we were able to treat ourselves to a fried banana dessert split amongst the family. If you too are looking for a great meal on a beautiful Hawaiian island then we recommend Sukhothai Café, it’s as clean as can be, the staff is super friendly and the cooool air conditioning made for a perfect evening out. You can’t miss it … just look for the fresh fruit arraigned along the front of their place as you meander down Kuhio Highway. If you’re like me I get lost wherever I go so just to pass along one of Kauai’s secret treasures to my friends I got the ladies phone number there before I left … it’s 808-821-1224.
